Congress intimidtion tactics on Hindus. MF Hussain got freedom of expression to paint Hindu deva-devis in crude vulger way, and that is secularism. But a boy in a networking site wrote some bla bla ('I hate Sonia Gandhi'), that is slandering to Congress master. Real fascism in practice in India today. Was not that slandering to Modi, when Congress master called him Maut ka Saudagar? Laws are different for different persons in India, Nehru now Maino clan is above all laws in India.
Boy held for slandering Sonia on Orkut
Pune: Twenty-two-year old Rahul Krishnakumar Vaid was arrested by the cyber crime cell of Pune police last Friday from Gurgaon in Haryana for posting vulgar content about Congress president Sonia Gandhi on social networking site Orkut.
"As far as India is concerned, one has fundamental rights but you can override them. But obscene and vulgar data is punishable under IT act,” says DCP, Pune Cyber Crime Cell, Sunil Phulari.
Vaid had posted the content an Orkut community titled 'I hate Sonia Gandhi'.
He has now been charged under Section 292 of the Indian Penal Code, pertaining to printing of obscene content, and Section 67 of the IT Act relating to publishing of obscene information in electronic form.
Vaid will be produced in Pune's Shivajinagar court on Wednesday and if found guilty, he will have to face up to five years of imprisonment and a fine of Rs 1 lakh.
The arrest follows a complaint by a Congress worker in Pune, who saw the comments on the website. The police are now looking for everyone who has posted anything obscene about the Congress leader.
“We were not violent in registering our complaint. We just went to Mr Phulari and asked him if there are laws about the Web outside of India, why do we not have the same in India,” says Member, Pune City Congress, Nitin Gujarathi.
Interestingly, the creator of the community has not been charged as hating prominent personalities or having an opinion is not illegal in India.
Google, the owner of Orkut was asked to divulge details about Vaid and it obliged. In a statement, Google says, "In compliance with valid Indian legal process, we provided Indian law enforcement authorities with the IP address information they requested in this case."
“Service providers are also liable. There are moderators but they are smart and put up disclaimers,” says cyber law expert Karnika Seth.
So till India has strict privacy laws like the US, the only safeguard is to either join communities after due diligence or stay away.
